100 thoughts to “Trump’s Instability Threatens To Deprive Him Of One Of His Re-Election Arguments | Deadline | MSNBC”

  1. "Mad King George". Yes. And he wants to be buddies with Vlad The Impaler (Kim) and Ivan The Terrible (Putin). Lovely thought. He defends these dictators because he wants to be one, thinks he should be/is one.

  2. Trump will get reelected because the media and DNC keep pushing candidates that the middle ground voters hate. They pushed Hillary and gave trump the win. They are making same mistake again.

  3. What about the Republican elected politicians ie the people who keep him in power?
    They are the only people who can save America but they stay silent and moribund.
    Why?
    Because their sponsors in the private sector are happy with this Whitehouse regime staffed by Big Business and Religious Fundamentalist opperants.
    They have gotten Fracking, more not Less Coal, no move towards Healthcare for American working people, an increased Military Budget, no effective Banking regulation, biased Middle East Policy, and everything else that the rich and powerful in America want.

  4. Here's a question for anti-Trumpers praying for a recession. Do you people think a man like Bernie Sanders could get elected during a recession? His policies – which are too expensive to even put a true dollar sign on them – would be impossible in that kind of environment. You should consider these things more carefully?

  5. Still on Russia? Collusion was real but was not involving Trump. Look very easily at the 3 previous administrations and the famed Secretary of State. So much for real reporting. Sinclair viewpoints win out again. More lies by the media. What a shame. Do these women have any morals or allegiance to the flag of the United States of America into the public for which it stands? So much for liberty and justice for all. Historic lies. Remember these people hitting the Americans against a duly elected president. Remember they never expected Hillary to lose. Agenda 21, no new world order, and we will never be a communist country or rolled over the puppets in the UN that answer directly to the Cabal.

  6. 5.02 secs in Mystery really come on USA media you know 45 is Russia asset say it as it is , your great president is a Russian spy along with Moscow Mitch and if congress dont do its job I hope the American people will be more patriotic and get this Russian spy out of office in 20 20.

  7. Boy oh boy,e the new trade deals are all pegged to the new economic system being launched and your handlers can't take it. 😢 too bad. No more free ride for the Central Banking System. Now the power will be restored back to the people. History in the making. By Silver people. Both Silver and Gold prices will rise and after the second reset, the gap between the 2 will close. Price now reflects 80 to 1! Research and make a smart choice. Go to your local coin dealer and buy with cash. Diversify your portfolio now! Be prepared. We will see the farmers have their best year in decades next year! Well done, the Japan trade deal is all good. Thee UK deal is all good. The Central Banking Organizations will be shut out and this is their only fight back? Please. Other countries are following suit. Hanged is coming. With change will be a unsettling hurt during the transition that is expected. The mainstream media lies. Do your own research. You owe it to your family and loved ones. They want us divided and weak. They are all blowing smoke up your butts. And many are eating it up with a spoon without question. Sadly enough, the mainstream media has failed the American people and the change will come in their existence in the next few years as those monopolies will be broken up. Mark my words. Truly seditious. Trusted and turn traders to us all. Hence the fake news proclaimed. Investigative journalism almost went extinct in the United States of America, almost…. the Patriots are the news now.

  8. Daffy Donald is well past the threshold at which he should be institutionalized in a facility equipped to deal with dementia.

  9. Why is MSNBC still pushing Biden? The man makes racist statements, can't remember what city or state he is in nor Obama's name; amongst many other signs of early onset senility. He is obviously a racist and I believe he is at least at the beginning of senility, if not further.

  10. Why do people want joe biden in? He can't remember Obama's name or what state he's in. People are very very stupid out here!

  11. Trump broken promise about 9/11

    On 15 February 2016, speaking to a wildly enthusiastic crowd in Bluffton, South Caroline, he promised that he would find out — and inform the American public — "who really knocked down the World Trade Centre."

    My guess is that when it was clear to him who was really involved in that ‘controlled demolition inside job’ he just kept quiet because he didn’t want to upset his boss Netanyahu.

  12. Why Nobody says anything about Epstein funeral ??

    I personally don’t believe that he is dead, on the contrary, I believe that he is in Israel but it is logical to ask If Epstein suicided or was killed then when did his funeral took place and who attended that funeral ? Why all type of media is completely silent about his ‘funeral’ ???

    As somebody else questioned “Why hasn’t the media asked if the “body” (if there was a dead body) was identified through DNA testing or dental forensics? But of course there probably was no DNA testing or dental forensics, and something very fishy went on with Epstein and his so-called “suicide””.

  13. Trump damaged american democracy and economy, but mostly the Republican party. It is becoming obvious that their representatives are just a bunch of self-centered liars and criminals. Supporters, the true republicans (with brains), are truly angry and about to take action.

  14. trump must have borrowed so many millions from Putin he now is owned lock stock and barrel by the Russian President and his henchmen lock him up 😜

  15. Trump will never be taken seriously by the people he wants to respect him. He knows he's an illegitimate president and that history will remember him as such. That's why he acts the way he does.

  16. Trump showing signs of Alzheimer's or Dementia how much do you think you're going to bet that if impeachment is on the table or when out of office, criminal prosecutions filed against him, the "Alzheimer's" defence will be put forward as to why he can't be prosecuted or impeached.

  17. What ELSE has Trump to do in order for GOP to finally acknowledge he's unfit for office and invoke the 25th amendent? I mean, he's already killing children and calls himself the King of Jews.

  18. This goes to show that the "Demon" Crazy" you people in the USA have created… and preach… and want other countries to follow…. is just a myth filled with lies. Not only Trump Lies. All past presidents in the USA have lied big times about global issues. You, USA, have demolished complete countries (including my own) for YOUR OWN EGOISTIC AND CENTRIC way of life. You, USA, Think that you are the cream of the cake… but, you are the terror that breaks and destroys families around the globe. You, USA, are a very SAD case not only in the sight of righteous men but also in the sight of Heaven. That is why y and my people Israel will be desolated and brought to justice. Ay de la mujersuela y la bestia que se unieron para formar iniquidad sobre la terra. Ay de los que disen ser y no son… vuestro fín es la desolación y completa destrucción. Así dice el Eterno.

  19. Every day tRump does not cause an international conflict directly is a bonus. Meanwhile the GOP gets work done that no one would want to own directly, environmental, national lands squandered, children deported to their deaths, for profit detention camps sucking our tax dollars, activist judges put in place for special interest, and I am sure I have missed some. The GOP should all resign and apologize to the country and the world.

  20. Why would anyone issue letters to immigrants with children sick giving them 33 days to leave…
    It's a terrible time when aides don't question their own morality.

  21. Open the Silk Road, fast! Europe´s only way is to turn to the East. There´s no more ideas or friends in the West. Only a decadent Empire in his last "fumes". On us U only have weapons, nothing more … ps. Who Dat ?

  22. I hope every Repugnican's home office during recess has people demonstrating outside demanding them to stand up against the potus….funny haven't heard any coverage of it….what's wrong with the American people – you should be out in the streets like in Hong Kong!

  23. Americans deserve president like trump. I don't see any demonstrations in US like in any normal democratic country. Isn't that strange?

  24. Hey Guys! The last poll which was voted on by around 1,475 people on multiple different sites (I am not making this up) have decided that they represent the majority view of the American People and have Biden in the lead!!!! (That guy that plays WoW on twitch has more people vote on his livestreaming polls than what these organizations report on) (And yes I know this is semi-unrelated)

  25. In a stayjacket or to Guantanamo for treason? At least Nixon had balls enough to leave when exposed. ONLY one laughing atm. is Putin. He´s small investment into Trollfactories had paid off BIG time! Whaterever you polls shows, you better brace for impact, Putin is going to use more nxt time…

  26. You guys are sooooo you're mean. To say the child president is a liar… Dementia or a full blown Alzheimer… So for that reason u can't laugh at very sick person! Oh things he say in public hahahahaha…

  27. I didn't get Maria Hinojosa, "It's like" "I'm like" I counted about 12 "likes" how old is she? I'm like is she 15

  28. its pathetic how you all are being lied to by the media, and how all liberal rebuttals always end up in name calling.

  29. BREAKING NEWS!!!!! MSNBC's instability threatens to deprive them of their two dozen remaining viewers … !!!

  30. From what I see of Trump he seems to either have Alzheimer's Disease or he has become insane and should be led out of the White House in a straight jacket.

  31. Hey people just like mnsbc didnt you just habe to retract the lie you told about our president,, yeah i heard, mueller is guilty also, but best of all obama let this happen on obamas watch,,and obama did nothing, so yep obama owns it, and then their is bidens son, in ukraine they were investigating bidens son, biden told them to shut down the investigation, or they would cut ukraines aid,,check it out, trump did great in helsinki,, bye fake news

  32. Well president trump, we could use alternative news, they at least tell the news,, not all this fake stuff, fake news msnbc sorry they are signing papers with japan,,now retract their statement,,

  33. When i say retract their statement, msnbc fake news people said their was no deal with japan, apologise for telling another lie, japan said their was a deal, whats the matter, cant hear well,

  34. If. Something happens to trump, we know where to look,and start, we know what all are doing,, we know that you spew your hate and filth every day,

  35. Obviously michigan is very proud to have voted in one of the 4 horsemen of congress, you should be proud,,she hates, jews, white people and lgbt,, which one are you?

  36. Excuse Me MSNBC..
    as If He …Meaning
    President Trump WasThe Dictator. because He is So Far Away From The Concensus of Followers
    at the G7 Meeting. If The Journalists At MSNBC were a bit more Historically Savey…. on What is Really Going on in The World Of
    International Politics.. You Guys would Be Much More Adept and Equipped to understand What the President Is Talking About..andThe Reasons Behind his Statements..
    in general… Your Journalistic Contribution is Squed based Upon
    Extremely Limited Knowledge And Comprehension of
    REAL WORLD STRATEGIC INTERNATIONAL POLITICAL DYNAMICS…

  37. First and foremost, I'm not a Trump supporter. However, to his credit, he is the 1st president to address the huge trade deficit resulting largely China's unfair trade practices (assisted corporate elites selling this country out). I'm weary of all this bellyaching over the tariffs and prognostications of its deleterious impact on the economy WITHOUT HEARING ANY ALTERNATIVES on addressing the trade issues. For me, this is an issue worth fighting

  38. 4:10 ….Why has Trump been the strong advocate for Russia? This is the question that rises above everything. This is what Mueller investigated. This is the dilemma. ….Occam's razor…follow the money…kompromat?…loans?…Putin knows. WE MUST KNOW. ….tax returns…denied subpoenas…lies…cover ups…obstruction of justice… The answer is in there somewhere. ><((((º>`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸.·´¯`·.¸¸$$$$$$$$$

  39. As a father I see distraction being the art of trying to hide the truth…..he doesn't know what he's doing, won't accept anyones help and tries to bamboozle all n' sundry to acheive an end goal that he hasn't(can't) even contemplated.

  40. some say this often false narrative maIn stream not honest channel and destroys real honest reporting.Some also say misinformation is the same as fraud in a big way .Propaganda can have Rwanda
    consequences and can be that serius if one read some history book,s and belive history

  41. The presumption that Trump WANTS to be reelected is questionable. He NEVER wanted to be President. Given that fact, he's held up rather well. When he goes, however, the Conservative Platform he's been pushing will still be there and given that the tax break was the only thing on their minds, he's actually done them proud. Nobody else wants him to be President either; but the Deficit is swollen beyond comprehension and the GOP could care less.

  42. So how are we supposed to look at this? Your wife is Russian,you love Putin, you're going against sanctions against Russia,you campaign in the G7 for bringing back Russia into the summit,so what the f—k is Really wrong with those Americans that's supporting this traitor?

  43. Talk, talk, talk ! Nobody is speaking for “us” ! All self – serving Ignorant political posturing is the Only action their taking ! Where are our Warriors ?

  44. Brigitte Macron doesn't look very comfortable in front of Trump. I would not place any woman there other than paid women in that position for fear he would grab their *

  45. Lie to make a lie, not a lie?

    Who can step forwards and Stop this now.
    This is absolute #TreasonbyTrump in your face.
    We are NOT the United States of used to be America being run by #DictatorPutin.

    I called Both of my Republican Senators. They can act now, or resign.

  46. If you vote for republicans, you are either a billionaire or a complete F'ing moron. Go check your bank accounts and see which it is.

  51. You’re #cowards:in the #media.

  52. Boy MSNBC seems to be Biden's Fox news. You never miss a chance to try to breath life into Biden's dead campaign…..
